      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Fuhrer Finger Conditions?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has any beta on the fuhrer finger right now? I know it's late in the season for it, but it's also a fat snow year so it's hard to say. Anybody been in the area? Does the line still go?


I tried calling the climbing rangers but there weren't any rangers there and the guy that I talked to was kinda useless. All he said was they haven't issued any permits for it lately but lots of people have been calling and asking.

Gave the finger a shot last weekend. The finger itself was in great shape and we had killer corn skiing around 9:30am. We called it quits at 12k feet but another group pressed on. We crossed paths with them again on the way down and they said there was a huge impassable crevasse around 12.5k feet when trying to get onto the upper Nisqually.
